30 Days of Photographs IV: Illuminate

It's already Day 2 of this wonderful challenge that was all MikeWJ's fault. Time flies when you're having fun, eh?

Today's theme is Illuminate. Link up at the bottom of the page and don't forget to check out the other participants and tell them they light up your world. Or something.


Day 2: Illuminate

My photo for today is of the bling that M brought me from London a few days ago. It's so bright and shiny it lights up the room. He's in Paris now, and I'm eagerly waiting to see if he'll bring me back something even shinier this time.

  2. Very pretty. The good thing about partners going away is that they bring gifts back :)

  3. Wow, a diamond whip! How illuminating.

  4. Lovely photo of a very pretty piece of jewelry. I was going to say bracelet but I'm not sure if that's what it is. Hope your surprise from Paris is equally brilliant.

  5. Ooooh, pretty. Next time we Skype, you should wear that. Pretty chains go well with whips. :-)

  6. I know, right? There was chocolate, too.

  7. Yep, the only thing that would make it any prettier is a sepia filter.

  8. Totally! Sometimes I make him go abroad just so I can get the gifts when he comes back.

  9. Yes, it's a bracelet. :) Frankly, I'm just happy every time he comes back home so I don't have to share a bed with the cats anymore. The gifts are just a bonus. ;)

  10. I love the way your mind works.

  11. That is a nice shiny thing. Cat wants to play with it. I hope M brings you pastries from Paris!

  12. All I can say is "Wow!" Love the bling and how you captured the shiny.

  13. Damn, girl. My spouse never brought me bling from trips. Could be why I'm not married anymore. I don't suppose M has a (much older) brother...

  14. I was thinking exactly the same thing except for the part about the cats. I never cared if my husband brought a gift, I was just glad he was home. It's an odd kind of loneliness that only lovers understand.

  15. My cats wanted to play with it, too. I told them no food for a week if they did.

  16. He does have a (slightly) older brother. I'll give him your number and tell him to bring bling.

  17. Getting bling from your man - you DO have magical powers. I'm lucky if I receive jewelry from the Mr. at Christmas (its sorta hit and miss).

  18. I keep trying to leave a comment but then I get distracted by the shiny object ;) I like how the blurred portion looks crunchy and sugary.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Just don't try to eat it, I don't think your teeth would fare very well. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, we've only been married a year, ask me again in 15 years and we'll see if he still gets me bling. ;)

  21. I really really like this photo! I like the different textures you used. Great choice on the fabric. Such a contrast with the bright and shiny bling. I also like the fancy focus technique you used. Very very nice photo. And might I add very very nice husband. If Lurch would bring me bling, I might let him back in the house. Maybe. Or not.

  22. Thank you, Malisa, you give such good comment. ;)


    I'll send M over to teach Lurch a thing or two, and while the boys are learning, you can come here and we can have a girls' night out.

  23. I see someone lights up YOUR world! YOWZA, you picked a good one! You photographed it beautifully too... I am envious of the illumination picture and what is being illuminated.. but in a "happy for you!" way!

    Holy cow! M brought you a sparkly thing and new serviettes?! He is both romantic and practical, and you have to love that.

    You also did a great job photographing them. I love the way the folds of the cloth and the soft focus throw your attention to just a few stones, which makes them seem even more precious than they are.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm ready! Sounds like a good plan!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yep, M brought me both a sparkly thing and new serviettes. Of course, you wouldn't know anything about gift giving because you didn't actually get me anything even though I traveled across an ocean to come see you.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha! Thanks, Katherine. I really am lucky, I pretty much get everything I want. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm bringing the vodka. And the pool boys.

    What are you talking about? You got to spend time with me. Do you realize how special that is?

    ReplyDelete
  30. :D you're right, of course. Spending time with you was worth more than any sparkly thing in the world. Except maybe the crown jewels. I could afford a lot of plane tickets to Denver if I had the crown jewels.
